BWW Review: SOMETHING ROTTEN at The Smith CenterBWW Review: SOMETHING ROTTEN at The Smith Center
by Jessica Vanek - August 16, 2017

I've always been a fan of satire and cheesy comedy, but the Broadway smash 'Something Rotten' by Karey and Wayne Kirkpatrick took this art form to a whole new level. The show is currently on tour, and made a stop in Las Vegas's beautiful Smith Center. I was lucky enough to get tickets and experience this musical masterpiece. (more...)

by Guest Blogger: Joscelyne Tamburri - April 28, 2017

Well, here we are; Our last week of CCPA 2016/17. Our opening week of shows went extremely well, with a few minor 'cringy' moments - as to be expected with live theatre - but in all, it was an incredibly successful week! These unexpected ended up adding humour to the show, like when Cogsworth goes to look up with the Beast and Lumiere and say 'look at the Rose, it's wilting at an alarming rate' (or something like that), and the rose has disappeared, forcing the actors to improv while tech figures out how to get the rose back up there. Or when Babette's shoe flies off her foot in the tango, and our actress plays it off beautifully. It's that moment when at first you freak out, but 10 minutes later, you're dying of laughter from it. And, like I said, we have a great cast who can play it off so the audience doesn't know it's unintentional. My dad even asked me if Gaston's fall into the Orchestra pit (intentional) was supposed to happen because it seemed so real and spontaneous. (more...)
BWW Blog: Say YES to Collegiate Student GroupsBWW Blog: Say YES to Collegiate Student Groups
by Christopher Castanho - April 27, 2017

As I am graduating from Shenandoah Conservatory in the next couple weeks, I have been reflecting on the programs and faculty members that have positively impacted me during my time here, and ironically I have learned  so much about myself and my craft outside the classroom. I credit a lot of my artistic growth from spending time in the dance studio, practice rooms, and rehearsal hall during late nights after classes have ended, collaborating with my peers. I think that when going into any industry it is important to have a wide understanding of communication and how to effectively talk to your teammates in order to achieve a goal. (more...)

by Tyler Hinton - April 12, 2017

Tony-winning actress and international singing star Lea Salonga returned to Brigham Young University on Tuesday, April 11, 2017 to perform a concert of her hit songs and other memorable numbers with BYU's Chamber Orchestra. The concert was presented in BYU's de Jong Concert Hall as part of its BRAVO! professional performing arts series. Lea Salonga's emotional resonance and power and purity of voice left the audience breathless with wonder at many moments throughout the evening. This was quite simply one of the best concerts many members of the audience may ever attend. (more...)

Jess here.  Las Vegas is known for its groundbreaking entertainment and risky performances.  The production I just saw of HAND TO GOD at the newly-opened Majestic Repertory Theatre is no exception to the rule.  This show was undoubtedly the funniest work I have ever seen, thanks to the actors and director, Troy Heard.  HAND TO GOD follows Jason, a troubled teenage boy with a strange connection to his homemade puppet.  Jason struggles to please his recently widowed mother who has put together a daily "Puppet Practice" group in the basement of a local Texas Lutheran Church.  Things slowly start to spiral out of control when Jason's puppet, Tyrone, seems to develop a sinister mind of his own.  Chaos and consequences ensue, as Jason and Tyrone ultimately go wild.
